It hasn’t been long since I returned from India, where I spent three weeks celebrating family and conducting some business, too. While I have returned with many treasured memories, one of my fondest remnants of this trip may just be the gemstones I acquired there—in particular spinels.
Celebrating mom, wearing sunscreen, and the best early summer drink
It’s Mother’s Day! That could either mean pleasure or panic, depending on how prepared you are. First up, make sure you check out our gift guide to treat mom (it’s not too late!) https://ayvajewelry.com/mothers-day-gift-guide/ We plan to celebrate this weekend by going out to brunch Sunday morning and then spending the rest of the day with the kids relaxing in the park.
Hope that you enjoy a beautiful weekend no matter how you celebrate. See you Monday!
